Good morning: 1-202-456-1414. Recognize it? It’s the phone number for the White House switchboard. If you wanted to speak with the President, leave a message, or find out information on upcoming events, this is the number you would call. Yet chances are, most of us have never called or even seriously considered calling. Who knows…

Good morning: Did you put off doing something yesterday which you had put off the day before and the week before that? I know I should weed my garden, but I can always find something else to do instead, and so I put it off until “tomorrow.” Maybe for you it’s a dentist appointment or…

Good morning: Chances are you were the target of someone’s anger in the past few days. Maybe it was someone in a store who became angry with you because you were or were not wearing a mask. It might have been a coworker who was upset because of something you did or did not do….

Good morning: A few days ago my family and I were enjoying a beautiful summer evening outdoors. Joining us high up in a tree was a bright red cardinal loudly singing its heart out for all to hear. We didn’t coax it into song. It didn’t have to think about it for a while. It…

Good morning: Most of us have probably done it. Your phone rings or buzzes, but before answering, you check the number to see whether you really want to talk to the person calling. You may decide that you already put in a long day at work and are not going to answer a call from…

Good morning: Happy Fourth of July! Even as our country grapples with COVID and other serious problems, we have reason to thank God for the many blessings He has given our nation, in particular, freedoms which millions of others around the world can only dream of. Imagine living in a country where your every move…

Good morning, Can you tell fact from fiction? It used to be much easier. In the pre-internet era a magazine in the grocery checkout lane might have had a sensational title such as “My next-door neighbor is a Martian!” Obviously, it was merely a sensational title to sell magazines. But now with Twitter, blogs, and…

Good morning: “You’ll thank me later.” Has anyone ever told you that? Did you believe them? When you wanted to drop chemistry in high school, did your parents refuse their permission and tell you, “You’ll thank us later”? Did an employer give you what appeared to be a terrible assignment and say, “You’ll see. This…

Good morning, The photo app on my phone regularly sends me pictures from the past, maybe family gatherings from a year ago or a vacation trip in 2015. It’s fun to remember those days and experiences. It also is a poignant reminder of how things change. Children grow up to have families of their own….

Good morning: What’s wrong with people?! Have you wondered that especially in light of all that’s been happening? Injustices, hatred, and violence keep growing. It is not a problem limited to the inner city or to other people besides us. The sin within which explodes into acts of hate and destruction lies in our hearts…
